This week we started assembling the robot and working on the software applications. We first started with the labs provided by the Texas Instruments TI-RSLK MAX curriculum. We started by getting familiar with CCS and the robot itself through the core labs such as Lab6(GPIO) and Lab 12 (Motors). This research led us to create a project that uses the front bumper sensors, LEDs, and motors to find its way around obstacles or even navigate a closed room. We affectionately call it the “wall banger” 🙂
This coming week we will be looking into sourcing extra sensors and booster packs for the MSP432 Board and diving deeper into the labs concerning more advanced topics such as UART and SPI.
